Dallas to tap water.
Jim Oliver, general manager of the Tarrant Regional Water District, said the Tarrant water district, the city of Dallas and the North Texas Municipal Water District are discussing a cost-share plan with the Sabine River Authority of Texas, which manages Texas' share of Toledo Bend, a man-made lake on the Louisiana border.
The proposed pipeline would run from Toledo Bend to Lake Fork in East Texas where it would supply the East Texas customers and enter the Dallas area water system through a pipeline already under construction that's expected to be finished within the next two years. Dallas-Fort Worth could tap into water from Toledo Bend by 2015. But, even if the pipeline is approved, other water options including a reservoir, would be considered.
